Cocoon by Sealy is Sealy's answer to the disruptive mattress in a box brands that have been so popular over the past two years. They offer two mattresses, both a variety of memory foams, a 'Chill' version and a regular version with a soft and a firm version. Through their massive brand awareness and mattress industry connections, it is no doubt that some of the disrupters are concerned about their mattress in a box entry.
Brooklyn Bedding is actually a Phoenix, Arizona company founded by two brothers in 1995 and named after one of the founder's daughters. What they have in experience shows in their matresses and attention to customer service! Over the past few months, they have revamped their mattress ingredients, moving from latex to a brand new blend of foam called TitanFlex™ foam. With a culture of innovation, it's definitely a low priced contender!
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Brooklyn Bedding in this match up!

At first, I was skeptical about memory foam. We have been using a pillow top mattress for years, and seldom used anything else. Me and my husband have consequently been suffering from back pain for years, and realized a change was long overdue. When we received the mattress, it was rolled up and vacuum sealed in a box, so my first impression was that it would be too thin to fit our bed. But, after removing the plastic wrap and waiting not even 10 minutes, it expanded tremendously, and was very entertaining for my children. I initially thought that the mattress would be too soft for us, but the bed contains just enough firmness to be comfortable, yet just enough softness to create envy from my family whenever they sit on it (which is very often!). After the first week in years with much less back pains and a full nights sleep, we knew that we'd never look back. This is a mattress that pays for itself, and a purchase that will not be wished away. I highly recommend Cocoon by Sealy. 5 stars all around!View More Reviews
I was a bit skeptical about the new Cocoon mattress. However, my initial impression changed when we started unpacking the mattress. First, it was very easy to unpack and set-up. It's compact and slid out of the box easily and was easy to unroll onto the box spring. It took a minute to find out where to rip the plastic exterior bag but once we did that we were in business. It was much easier to get out of the bag and into place than the previous mattresses; it just isn't as bulky or doesn't seem as heavy as traditional mattresses. The mattress is a bit thinner than our previous mattress but I haven't found that to matter. I don't think it really requires the extra deep sheets to cover it even though that is what we used on it. I prefer a bit of a softer mattress and my husband prefers the opposite. However, I find sometimes with soft mattresses that they are too soft to the point where if you are on the edge of the bed, you feel like the mattress will collapse. In this case, I ordered the soft mattress hoping it would work out and have been very happy with it. The top of the mattress is like memory foam which makes it fit my need for a soft mattress but the under part is firmer which gives the support of a firm mattress and makes the mattress feel seem more stable. I'm not sure how this will last long term but for now it is quite nice. The mattress incredibly comfortable to sleep on and I have found that I can't feel the other person if they roll around in the bed. This isn't always something I have experienced with other mattresses and so have really appreciated that quiet feeling. Overall, this mattress has made for some great sleeping and I would definitely purchase it for other bedrooms in our house.
I'm used to big, bulky mattresses. The Cocoon is much lighter. I used to sleep on a pillow top. The Cocoon is even softer. I feel so cradled in it.
I like the mattress. I feel great in the morning but I prefer more firmer than the current one. Sealy made good mattresses for over decades. The texture and the thickness makes you feel comfortable when you sleep. I would recommend for anyone who's looking to sleep tight at night. If you are super heavy person this mattress is not for you.
The only thing that I would say is that the soft mattress is really a medium. I would have preferred an actual soft mattress, but this one isn't a bad mattress and we are sleeping much better on this new mattress than our old one.
Nice and comfortable- came on time and setup easily
It's pretty nice.
I like the idea of the bed in a box. I was very excited about trying the Sealy Cocoon Mattress. The box was extremely heavy, but it was well packed and easy to set up. The bed is surprisingly soft and comfortable.
I've been sleeping on my new mattress for a week. I purchased a firm mattress and can feel a wonderful difference in my body. I suffer from low back and hip pain. I've woken up each morning pain free. Two thumbs up!! I want to purchase a second one for my daughter so I'm hoping Sealy will offer me a returning customer discount.
WE GOT THE FIRM MATTRESS AND WERE A LITTLE SKEPTICAL BECAUSE IT WAS A LITTLE SOFT ON TOP...BUT WE WERE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED....VERY COMFORTABLE.....WE LOVE IT !
I've been sleeping on my new Cocoon mattress, and I think its been helping me sleep better than I have in a long time! The mattress came in a box and seemed very 'small' at first glance. Once we opened the box up onto our bed, it expanded into a full size mattress within a few minutes. The first night the mattress was way too firm for our liking, but I realize that mattresses (memory foam in general) need to be broken in. After a couple of days of sleeping on the Cocoon, I've been sleeping harder, and with much less movement than I normally do. I also can feel the movement of my sleeping partner significantly less than my previous, non- memory foam mattress. I haven't noticed being particularly cool or warm while sleeping yet, but my husband has mentioned that he felt it was cool for a foam mattress. All of this has definitely helped me sleep very well since I got it!
I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5, because the depth of the mattress is a bit more thin than I prefer. Now my nightstands seem too high! Also, I like to read in bed and it still seems a bit firm to really do that comfortably, but that might change with some more time. Other than that, so far, we like it more than our old mattress!
It was amazing to think a mattress could form from the pad that was mailed to us! As we cut the plastic away the foam raised up to form a bed. That got everyone in the household excited. The concept is great. We are used to sleeping on a regular spring mattress with a thick 3-4 inch foam pad on top. The Cocoon, at first, was hard and took some time to get used to. We have only slept on it for a week and the paperwork that comes with the bed says to give it 100 days. I am starting to like it. The Cocoon seems to form into your badyshape and actually support you. My husband sweats alot during his sleep and usually always has to kick the blackets off during the night, he says that since we have been sleeping on the Cocoon, he is more comfortable tempurature wise. What is also nice is that not being a spring matress it does not move as much when your sleeping partner moves or gets up. My Husband and I have different schedules, so this helps tremendously, so we are both not bothered when the other gets up. This is by no means a luxouriuos mattress, but it is starting to grow on us.
Absolutely love it! Very comfortable and a really good deal on a very nice mattress! Would definitely recommend.View More Reviews
Amazing bed! So much better than the $2500 bed we just ditched. Soft yet supportive for side sleepers.
Great mattress. Very firm, just like it should be.
We've had it for two months now. Still love it, no back problems, no change in the condition of the mattress. We highly recommend it.
The matress is comfortable. I wish it was a little more firm. But overall I'm very happy.
Latex makes this a hot mattress. I had an original tempurpedic for the last 10 years and, boy, do I miss that. Never got hot...felt like I was sleeping in heaven. This mattress heats up like nothing I've ever felt.
Medium is way too firm. I'm 170 lbs and it gives me back aches every night. I've had it for almost a month now and there has been no 'breaking in' period.
I assume most people that have reviewed this mattress positively are obese or have never slept on a good mattress before.
You can 'return' this mattress, but good luck compressing it back to the original size to fit in the box it came in. Probably will just bite the bullet on 750 bucks and use this as the bed for my guest bedroom...maybe I'll get a mattress topper for it.
One of the frustrating things is folks (like me) have their NEW bed, LOVE IT, and that's all the review consists of. New mattress (presumably replacing a broken down, worn out mattress) are more than likely going to feel a lot better (after a short adjustment period, most likely.
Well, now I'm passed my 120 trial period. I've had some real time to "sleep on it".
I'm still in love with it. I do tend to sleep hot at times. Occasionally I do wake up a bit warm, but nothing close to what I experienced with the mattress this one replaced.
I wake up every morning with no aches or pains, feeling rested and start the day. My bed partner is NOT a morning person and I have to use various techniques to get them to finally slip out from between the sheets.
Even as a large guy, I find more than sufficent edge support. Now I tend to sit where my knees are nearly touching the mattress, not my butt right on the edge. The latex foam does have a different feel, if you've never experienced it before, but one that is conforming and supportive.
My five star review stands. I will try to come back every so often and give updates. Should something drastically change I'll update the review sooner, but next check-in will probably be at the "one year mark"
I purchased my #BestMattressEver directly from Brooklyn bedding. If you want the full 120 night trial period, this is the way you really should go.
I ordered the Queen Medium firmness after speaking with Keaton at BB, upon his recommendation.
Both myself and my partner are side sleepers, predominately and at times I sleep warm while my bedmate can sleep roasting hot at times.
I am 6'4" 240 pounds, my "sleep partner" is 5'8" 165.
Choosing a mattress is a VERY individual thing, so know up front these are my/our preferences.
Our major concerns:
being able to use the full width of the bed, as some have issues with the support at the edge of the bed.
We like sleeping "on" not "in" a bed.
Cushioning, preventing pressure points.
Support to keep things properly aligned. sometimes tricky when dealing with two very different body shapes and weights.
Amorous activities. Hey, a bed is for more than just sleeping.
To the best of my knowledge, I had never slept on a latex bed before. After visiting MANY "mattress review/mattress revenue sites" (you know those sites where the guys get a mattress at a discount or for free and then earn money off you if you use their link to purchase a mattress) I only got more confused. There seems to almost be a correlation between their kick-back and how well they like and recommend a mattress. and not all mattresses are going to work for all people. It's not a bad gig, but in the end I found them rating most mattresses they link to be "very good-excellent"
What you are looking for can be condensed down pretty simply.
1) do you know what style bed you're looking for: innerspring, hybrid (combination of either innerspring/foam or different types of foam i.e. latex/memory foam/some proprietary material), memory foam or latex. They all have their proponents and drawbacks.
2) are quality materials being used? Needless to say, the better the materials going into a product, the better long-term usage you'll get out of the mattress
3) what is the track record of the company? There are literally new internet mattress companies popping up weekly. What use is a 10, 15, 20 year warranty (with 10 being pretty common for the internet mattress companies) if they aren't going to be around when you do have an issue. That doesn't mean that someone that is just starting out is going to fail and not be around in 5 years, but some of these folks simply won't make it. Just the harsh reality of doing business in a very competitive market.
4) great internet campaigns and presence does NOT necessarily mean a great product; and certainly NOT a product that is made for everyone.
Try to find some unbiased review sites, ask questions, compare notes.
For us,the #BestMattressEver seemed like a really good choice. We can try it for 120 nights (the average is around 100, though some are 75 and this seems to be the highest I've seen offered)
There is some new technologies out there that you simply have to try to see if it works for you. (The Purple comes to mind in this category, with their hyper-polymer top) they are unique enough there is nothing short of trying it out to know if that is the mattress that you'll be happy with for the next 5,7,10 years.
Price/quality/value: Find a price point you can live with, get the best quality materials and you have a good valued product.
Even at 240 pounds, the medium for a side sleep like me is more firm than what I was expecting. That's not a bad thing. Perhaps our old mattress was just much worse off than I realized. I don't feel pressure points, it does give me great support, I DO like sleeping on top of a mattress, not in it as with most memory foams I've experienced. I wanted to try something different, as innerspring mattresses have always developed dips and sagging over time. Directly relatable to the quality of the springs inside.
I will update this review as time passes and the bed adjusts to us and we adjust to the bed.
If you have any questions, just add a comment and I'll try to respond.
As a side note, Ours arrived sans box, just the wrapping material. I was a bit concerned, thinking the box may have been destroyed, but it arrived in perfect shape with no damage. It IS heavy (queen coming in right at the 100 lb mark, so be cognizant of that should you need to go up stairs, it may be helpful depending on your size and strength to have someone to assist. Open it AFTER it is on the bed frame.
This is the best mattress I have ever slept on. I got the Queen medium. I have it on an adjustable bed frame and it works perfectly. So glad I took a chance on this. I did my research on latex mattresses vs. memory foam (not fond of memory foam) and then picked this out as equivalent to many very high priced mattresses. you are great, Brooklyn Bedding, I would buy this again in a heartbeat.
This bed is like a dream to get into. I haven't had it very long and I do occasionally awake with soreness in my neck. I think that has more to do with my pillow than the bed. The pillow is down, and I probably should have found some foam.
This is my first foam bed. I was really unsure what to expect because I had never laid on one of these when I ordered it. And I ordered the King size softest you could get. It was a little bit expensive for a foam bed, but I in no way regret it. I ordered some bed frame with slats from here on amazon. Also wired up some lights underneath. I also picked up some high thread cottons and a suede comforter. It's amazing going to bed at night. I thought I'd wake up sweaty due to the thick suede and the foam bottom, but so far no complaints.
When I first got the bed I took it out of the box and I really thought it was a full size bed. Like the company sent me the wrong thing. But I decided to open it to be sure. It's interesting how sneakily fast it springs to life. It's almost difficult to get the plastic completely off it before the mattress expands beyond plastic's borders and pulls it too tight to get your knife into.
You know I've slept in some pretty awesome pillow top beds as well. I cant say that this one is really more comfortable than that one. It's kind of a different feel, but both are incredibly pleasant. What I like about my foam bed is after I bought it I thought it was a good idea to jump on the bed. Surprisingly nothing horrible happened. I jumped up and down on the foam and the bed didn't shake hardly. I just sunk into the foam. But I didn't sink so far into the foam that I could feel the slats underneath. I jumped around for a little while, and absolutely nothing bad happened. Considering I'm 6'4" 245 pounds that a pretty impressive thing. Sometimes it comes in handy to have a bed that does not shift or squeak.
I've got some nice photos of the bed all assembled. I don't have them now, but perhaps I'll upload them later.
Excellent bed. I have scoliosis so I got the soft which was the correct choice. It's pretty comfortable. It's not quite as comfortable as some higher end hotel mattresses but I've looked at those prices and they were over $1500 for what I wanted. I've also tried one of the online competitors and had to send it back because it was too uncomfortable. Overall I'm happy with my choice. For the price I doubt you will find better.
My name is Miguel Lefort and I work as a physical therapist. I have just recently purchased a Brooklyn Bedding medium comfort king size mattress. After just 3 nights sleep on my new Brooklyn Bedding mattress, I'm convinced that I made an excellent choice. I am extremely satisfied with this product and I will recommend it highly to all my family, friends and patients.
Working as a physical therapist, I see many patients who have issues sleeping at night. Many times, patients will state that pain symptoms are typically irritated by uncomfortable resting positions due to issues with their mattress. I am convinced that the soft / medium / firm concept offered by Brooklyn Bedding could help many of my patients. Getting a good nights sleep is an essential aspect of leading a healthy lifestyle. Many individual patients have spoken to me about their mattress preferences depending on sleep positions as well as their personal health histories (ie.) lumbar patient who sleeps on their back requiring a firm surface vs. a shoulder patient who sleeps on their side requiring a softer sleeping surface. Brooklyn Bedding offers individuals a choice which can be tailored to their specific needs in order to achieve a comfortable / painless sleep cycle.
Even though I have only slept 3 nights on my new Brooklyn Bedding mattress, I'm very impressed by the quality and comfort associated with this product. The affordable cost and high quality of this product are second to none. I did lots of research on various companies and mattress prior to making this purchase. Ultimately, I kept coming back to the Brooklyn Bedding website. I am very pleased to have this mattress as it encourages a good nights sleep which is essential to leading a healthy lifestyle. Once again, I would like to express my sincere recommendation to consider Brooklyn Bedding for your next mattress. I am convinced that anyone who tries this product will be extremely satisfied.
This is a beautiful mattress - incredibly comfortable mix of enough firmness with a cushy feel on top. After many struggles and attempts with mattresses in Goldilocks fashion, I find this mattress is "just right". The company is incredibly helpful as well.
Great bed for the money , researched all the online brands to death. Overall Brooklyn bedding is a great value for the bed. The medium is more medium firm but with just the right amount of give unless your used of sleeping on a ultra soft bed you'll really enjoy they bed like I do.
I'm so pleased with the mattress, which I've been sleeping on for 2 weeks now. It provides enough support yet is comfortable and soft enough for me as a side sleeper. It was sent quickly, was very well packaged, and was easy to unwrap.
It is everything the ad claims it was here quickly it unfolded expanded very rapidly no smell flip on at the first night the first night I slept literally in years super fantastic I have no reservations I would recommend it to anyone
Fit For A Queen......Measures 80 Inches Long, 60 Inches Wide, 10 Inches High (SOFT), A Very Comfortable Mattress Whether Sleeping On My Side Or Sleeping On My Back (II Am 5 FT..8 Inches Tall Weigh 145 Lbs.....Very Attractive Looking, Three Shades Of Light Grey And White Sides.....Very Nice All White Comfy Top..........( A Side Note)....Mattress Arrives In A Sturdy Box.....Nicely Wrapped In Plastic....Take Great Care In Removing The Plastic From The Mattress.....I Had No Issues......Fit For A Queen......I Use The Mattress Right On A Laminate Floor.....No Issues ........
This mattress is the most comfortable we've ever purchased. I'm glad I paid the extra for the latex, as it doesn't hold the heat. It was easy to unpack and plumped to shape quickly. We placed it on top of our current box spring. It is the perfect height and the fitted sheet fit easily over the corners. It was great the first night we slept on it. No getting used to it. Will be purchasing another for the guest room!
I am glad I purchased this. Read many reviews and decided to go with this mattress because of the reviews. I saved up money and was ready to buy a "top of the line" mattress and just searched Amazon and found many reviews (even for other mattresses) directing me to try this mattress. It's great. I have been sleeping on the mattress for a month and have no back pain anymore. I am a side and back sleeper. What sold me (besides the price) was all of the rave reviews and the customer support. Brooklyn Bedding offers great support/warranty and they are a family owned company. It is a great product. I will be buying mattresses only from them from now on.
Scared me at first bc it looked small but grew large after removed from packaging.. Loveee this mattress! I have looked all over for a mattress like this! Its perfect
This bed is everything that it promised to be. I can not even find a "but" or "or" at this point. The soft bed is what i wanted. After a few night rest my back was better, and i was sleeping. Anyone who doesn't believe me look at my fitbit page i get a very restful sleep every night now. We did nto have to add any type of toppers (which i wouldn't want to add anyway) to the bed either. We had a tempurpedic and we almost pulled the trigger on a Tuft and Needles until we read that the beds were to firm. In Austin where we live this same bed goes for 4200 dollars at Natural Mattress, We go it for 950. This bed is awesome, and i will never buy another bed again. Also their is no chemical smell to this bed either. THESE GUYS GOT IT FIGURED OUT!!!!! Thank you BB i am a customer for life.
The most comfortable mattress we have ever slept on. Over sleeping may become an issue.
The mattress came exactly as advertised; the shipping, packaging, and firmness are as represented on the web page. I weight 210 and sleep on my side: medium firmness suites me.
I also like being able to buy an American made product.
The best nights sleep I have ever had was on this mattress
The finest bedding item I have ever purchased! Heard about it on the Elvis Duran Radio Show...wish I had purchased this mattress long ago! Do not shop around ... Be more than happy and BUY THIS NOW!
After three months there is bad sagging on both locations my wife an I sleep on. We have rotated it twice since we have owned. I have terrible back pain now
The best mattress for ever, is perfec to me feels like a cloud, and the box package is the best way to put this mattress on my 2nd floor room.
I love it.
